New Armenian translation of Quran to be published

(AhlulBayt News Agency) - The Iranian cultural center in Yerevan, Armenia, has commissioned translating the Quran into Armenian.

Majid Moshki, Iran’s cultural attaché in the Caucasian country, there have been translations of the Holy Book in Armenian before but they are not of high quality.

He told Quran TV’s Rasad program that the cultural center commissioned translating the Quran into Armenian two years ago and so far 15 the rendering of 15 Juzes has been completed.

Moshki added that the translation of the 15 Juzes is now available on the websites of the cultural center and Yerevan’s Blue Mosque.

The Armenian language, which occupies an independent branch of the Indo-European language tree, is the official language of the Republic of Armenia and the Republic of Artsakh.

It has historically been spoken throughout the Armenian Highlands and today is widely spoken in the Armenian diaspora.
